When you were created by God you were made in His likeness. Jesus our Savior said that you would be able to do greater things than He did. In Genesis 1:3-5 we read the very first thing that God did at creation, "Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day." As I was praying the Lord spoke to me; 'Kevin, My people need to know how to divide light from darkness.' We need to be able to separate the things of light from the dark things. 2 Corinthians 6:14 "For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" Ephesians 5:13 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them." The Bible also tells us that Jesus is the light of the world and Jesus said, "men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." What then should we the righteous people want? I believe it's to walk in the light because our deeds are good. God created everything else that was good after He separated day and night. Once you are saved the light of the world steps into you and you can clearly see the difference between light and dark. We then as His new creation have the power to separate good from evil. I have confidence in you today that you can speak over yourself and as you would walk in the light as He is in the light the things of darkness would not be able to overshadow you. This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. You are a person of the day and may His light warm your world with His love.
This Sunday we will have Peter from the Bible Camp give us an update on how the camp is doing. I will be sharing on, 'A Second Time.' Have you ever needed encouragement... a second time? Have you ever needed to eat... a second time? God knows in order to continually advance we need to continually be strengthened. Yesterday's manna will not strengthen us for today's journey.
There will be no Bible Study this coming Wednesday. Next weekend there is a ladies retreat at the Sydney Pentecostal Church. The following weekend is May 7th and that's Family Sunday.Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
